Meet the Family

I have five younger siblings, we are fairly close, although we live in three different states. I miss them all immensely.

Ms. C and I are three years apart. C, lives in Oklahoma with her husband Mr. Wrong and her two daughters Miss E and Miss R.
Ms. C and I. She is the outspoken one
Big B is my step-brother, his dad married my Lisa, he just entered the military (air force, I think, but I am not sure.)
B, don't be mad, I "stole" this photo off your FB page.

J is my half-brother, he will be going to college in Reno next year. J and I are 11 years apart, he was born with a cleft-lip and palate, is really into science and is positively weird.
J and Miss E
Little Miss B, also known as Broccoli. She was my little doll growing up. She just turned 16 earlier this month and got her learner's permit to drive. Thankfully she lives in Oklahoma, so the roads here in So Cal. are safe.
Miss B
Miss S is the baby of the family. She is in 4-H and raises pigs and turkeys. She is growing in her relationship with Christ and I am so excited to see where life takes her.
I love this picture of Miss S

So now you've met the family.

Me and my sisters, circa 2003

Sometimes you just can't win

I give up! The D has defeated me, and I am just going to give in and let it do what it wants for a while. 

Since I got injured, I've been home from work and my schedule has been unusual. I haven't gotten much exercise and I've been sleeping in and skipping meals, which I don't normally do. Consequently my blood sugars have bounced from high to low and back again without ever balancing out. 

Today I went back to work, and also back to the rink. Throughout the day my blood sugars were beautiful! Steady between 116-130. 

Then I went to the rink, I tested before my lesson and was 116, the sensor showed an up arrow, and I felt fine, so I didn't bother with a snack. Sometime during my lesson, I got really sweaty, like drenched, but I figured it was because I was working so hard. I did not feel low, or high for that matter. 

I didn't test after skating (I probably should have.) By the time I got home and prepared to eat dinner the sensor was showing 197 and double up arrows. I tested 333 AHHH WTF? 

Now that I think about it, I am pretty sure I went low skating, and that lovely liver of mine dumped glucose (thank you liver, for doing your job oh so well.) But, now I am right back where I started, bouncing from high to low with no end in sight. 

So, I give up. Dear D, please let me know when I can take over again. BTW I see Dr. Lee at the end of this month, so we need to get out act together.

My Brief Hiatus


Is anyone still here? Yes, I realize it has been nearly 2 weeks since I've posted anything. I am really sorry about that.

Many of you might already know, but for any followers who are on the fringe, I broke my wrist last Tuesday while ice skating. I was in a cast, now I am in a splint. Typing, among other things is not easy comfortable.

My BG's have been all over the place, which has not been fun either.

But, on to better news....

The Inland Empire JDRF Walk for a Cure was last Saturday, despite not reaching my goal of 50 walkers, I had a great time. 6 people (Thank you, Matthew, Justin, Nicole (and baby), Matthew, and Mr. Harer) did join my team, and we raised a total of $255.

On Sunday, Mr. Harer and I went to the Air Show at MCAS Miramar. We saw the Blue Angels fly, which was really fun.

I will be doing a half-time devotional for my church's youth basketball league on Saturday, I am still trying to decide on a verse.

That is about all right now, I promise I will have something better to post tomorrow.
